The hostel is very well located and has good facilities. The service however is bad, we didn’t get treated as guests (more like a liability). The room was really hot, and there is no A.C. The window has no curtains and the lights outside are on at night which make it very uncomfortable to sleep. The hostess is very welcoming but has a lot of rules and will charge you extra money if you break one of them, if you feel uncomfortable in the middle of the night because of heat don’t switch beds because they will try to charge you a whole extra night! We have never been to a place where an extra pair of sheets is such a big deal, just try to avoid uncomfortable situations with the management at this hostel.

Response from TheGreenBMR, Manager at The Green Backpackers

Thank you for taking the time to review us, I am sorry you did not enjoy the service as it is one of the things we value most. That is the main reason we thought you would appreciate the fact that we gave you a whole dorm all for your self's even though there was still space in the other dorms. How ever, for future reference we might recommend: If you are hot - Open the window. It is windy and 14 degrees outside on all nights in Mitzpe Ramon - all summer long. If you want an air conditioner - book the room that has one and not the room with the fan. If the lights outside bothers you - close the shutters. Not the glass window. (or just wait for 23:00 when the lights turn off by themselves). and when a desert hostel staff kindly explains that they will happily move your sheets for you to a different bed, you could try not to dirty more then one sets of sheets as water in the middle east is scarce. Good guests but bad manners. :)

The hostel staff was very friendly and helpful so we got helpful hiking tips around Mitspe Ramon. The atmosphere in the small hostel was amazing, we met really nice travelers there. The rooms were very clean as well. It was the best hostel on our Israel-journey and we totally recommend it :)

I was here for two nights and this was by far the best hostel i have been yet in israel. The owner is just perfectly helpful, she recommended me a 12km hike and it was beautiful. The hostel is located right at the edge of the crater and next to the camel lookout, making it a perfect starting point for hiking trips. The whole place is just super super clean and you feel extremly welcome and comfortable.

I stayed in this small youth hostel on the edge of the Negev desert for a couple of days and can honestly call this one of the nicest hostel experiences I've had: Dorms are comfortable and clean - a little cold in February but guess what: everyone got a hot water bottle! All facilities are regularly cleaned and good. The very guest-orientated staff, which next to the owners consists of brilliant young volunteers was helpful in every way and we had the best time playing games, puzzling and exchanging stories late into the night. The small common area means you meet people from around the world with whom you can go hiking in the gorgeous Makhtesh Ramon Crater. If you like the desert and want have a real Home-Away-From-Home experience, come to The Green Backpackers!
